NEW YORK, February 4, 2011 A defining feature of a scientific discovery is replication by others. In today's age of computational science, this means higher standards of communication of discoveries making available the data that generated the results along with the published research paper. Doing this makes the technology behind the finding widely accessible, facilitating re-use and verification of results.
Tools and approaches to facilitate such knowledge transfer will be discussed at a symposium titled The Digitization of Science: Reproducibility and Interdisciplinary Knowledge Transfer at the American Association for the Advancement of Science Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, on Saturday, February 19, 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., in 159AB Washington Convention Center.
